A very attractive chawan (tea bowl) made in the kuro-oribe style of pottery.

This particular bowl was used during the celebration of the 350th anniversary of the great tea party at Kyoto Kitano-tenmangu shrine. The original event was hosted by Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1537-1598), the regent of Japan at the time, on October 1, 1587.

The anniversary gathering was held for 2 days from October 1, 1936, at the same shrine.

The bowl bears the seal of its maker 「玄」.
A small part of the white glaze seems to have peeled off, but that does not take away the noble air of the bowl, quite the contrary; that wabi-sabi feature gives it more depth.

The chawan comes with a fitted wooden box.
Size: 7.4 x 12.7 cm (3 x 5 in)
